Your Thyroid is probably the most important gland in your body and so the potential for it to go wrong is both massive and frequent. Swanson Condition Specific Thyroid offers your body all the natural essentials it needs to help your Thyroid function; and it does it all from herbal sources.
It can be hard to keep up with everything that's going on in your body. With so many glands, hormones and antioxidants at work, you could be forgiven for giving it a bit of a rest from time to time. Unfortunately when it comes to your Thyroid, a part of your body you may have only recently discovered, there is no room for error.
This butterfly shaped gland which sits across your throat - just above the larynx - is approximately two inches long and is connected to your windpipe on either side by lobes. The Isthmus (the connective tissue in between) is what makes it look as though it has a wingspan and for all intents and purposes you probably never even realised it was there.
The Thyroid is almost always at work for your body, producing a massive amount of metabolism hormones that are vital to nearly every function in your body. Swanson Condition Thyroid Essentials aims to support that process with a selection of minerals and vitamins which actively encourage your body's systems to work much as your Thyroid should.
Because your Thyroid plays a role in so many different functions across a range of organs, you would imagine that a low functioning gland was the only real problem to address. However, a high functioning Thyroid is actually just as dangerous as a low functioning one. The symptoms we need to look out for are fatigue, weight gain, sleep problems, hair loss, constipation and depression.
While low Thyroid activity generally affects women over the age of 40, it isn't completely unusual for children and men to suffer its effects too. Especially in cases which are hereditary. Obviously the people who have to tackle the ever changing climate of hormones the most are post menopausal women, which is probably why a recent study has suggested that around 15-20% of women over the age of 60 may already be suffering from subclinical hypothyroidism.
Hormones such as insulin, cortisol, oestrogen, testosterone and progesterone all rely on the Thyroid to keep our bodies in balance and even the smallest change in its output can have a devastating effect on your health. Especially if it is sustained over a period of time.
Swanson Thyroid Essentials provides optimal nourishment for your Thyroid gland by using specialised ingredients such as Coleus forskohlii, a little-known but incredibly beneficial herb. It also uses other more recognised Thyroid enhancers like zinc, copper, iodine and B vitamins.
